Evans leaves Tipp following fifth consecutive defeat

Updated: March 21, 2012

Tipperary senior football manager John Evans has stepped down from his role.

Sligo beat Tipperary by 12 points in Division 3 of the Football League to ease their relegation worries.   Tipperary remain rooted to the foot of the table having suffered five defeats in a row and for John Evans, it was the final straw as he stepped down as boss on Sunday evening.  Having enjoyed some great times in his four and a half years in charge; Evans walked away clearly dejected to leave on such a low note.

Having won only one of their opening four league games; Sligo came into the game low on confidence and having dominated possession, they struggled to impose themselves on the game in the opening half.  This was a great chance for the Premier County to register their first points of the game but, having gone in level at half-time, they registered only one point in the second half and were beaten out the gate during the second 35 minutes.   Evans had seen enough and the retired detective stepped down shortly after the final whistle with his side almost certainly doomed to relegation to Division 4.
